50+ cases against Salahuddin in India 28.6.2017 DNA: India
Hizbul Mujahideen chief Mohammad Yousuf Shah alias Syed Salahuddin, who has been declared a 'Specially Designated Global Terrorist' by the US, is wanted in more than 50 terror cases including assassinations, abduction, attacks on security forces, and hawala funding within India, including Jammu and Kashmir. In some cases, investigating agencies have filed charge sheets and in a few others, investigations are still on. However, little headway has been made in these cases given that Salahuddin has been absconding. Director General of Police, SP Vaid said, "He is named in a number of FIRs." Based in Pakistan-occupied Kashmir (PoK) since 1993, the 71-year-old politician-turned-terrorist leader has been declared as a proclaimed offender in a Rs 80 crore terror funding case by a special National Investigation Agency (NIA) court in 2013. There is also an Interpol Red Notice pending against Salahuddin who is also the head of the United Jihad Council, an umbrella group of over a dozen terrorist outfits based in ...

For Metro users, last-mile connectivity still a hassle 28.6.2017
Bengaluru: Even though BMRCL launched full-fledged service on both Purple and Green lines, commuters are upset with lack of last mile connectivity at most stations and want BMRCL to work in tandem with BMTC. One such glaring example is the Trinity Circle station, which daily witnesses heavy footfalls, but has very poor bus connectivity. According to the thousands of commuters who use this station to reach areas such as Koramangala, Dairy Circle, Silk Board Junction, Bannerghatta Road, there is no bus stop nearby and they have to walk long distances. "Only G2 route buses are connecting this station in their return direction from Sarjapur road. But as there is no bus stop, passengers forced to walk at least 1.5 kilometres from two signals," said Shyamala Murthy, a working professional from Koramangala. "No other metro station is accessible for commuters from busy Koramangala and surrounding areas. Still, it is sad that neither BMTC nor BMRCL are working on providing bus connectivity to ...
